A 53-year-old Millsboro man died Monday from injuries he suffered in a single-car crash last month, according to police.
Oliver K. Ayars had been a patient at Christiana Hospital since the Sept. 8 crash on Gravel Hill Road, less than a mile north of Kawan Drive, southeast of Georgetown, Delaware State Police spokesman Master Cpl. Gary Fournier said.
The crash occurred while Ayars was driving a 2007 Chevrolet Impala though a curvy section of northbound Gravel Hill Road.
Due to the speed of the vehicle, the car began to spin counterclockwise and exited the west side of the roadway where it struck a utility pole, Fournier said.
Ayars initially was taken to Beebe Medical Center in Lewes before being flown to Christiana Hospital.
